"The Vision and Reality of Ubiquitous Computing"

(Vortrag im Rahmen der "Distinguished Lecture Series 07/08" des Max Planck Instituts für Software-Systeme)

About ten years ago, the notion of ubiquitous computing first appeared, just as the first truly mobile devices became available. Ten years later, the notion of ubiquitous computing as integrating computing into the environment has not quite panned out, with the emphasis shifting to personal, mobile devices. In this talk, I will try to illustrate some of the user-focused challenges that derive from the goals of ubiquitous computing. We have also started to address some aspects of the problem with our work on service and session mobility, as well as attempts to offer core network services, such as email and web access, in partially disconnected environments.
